It may be possible to treat varicose veins and more serious venous disease conditions — such as skin discoloration, swelling legs, and venous ulcers — using the relatively quick and comparatively pain-free Venefit Targeted Endovenous Therapy, a tested and proven form of endovenous thermal ablation.
How Does Radiofrequency Thermal Endovenous Ablation Recovery and Therapy Work?
Radiofrequency endovenous thermal ablation is a minimally-invasive procedure in which a thin, flexible tube (catheter) is inserted into a diseased vein through a small incision. Along the end of the catheter is an element that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the collagen in the vein walls, which causes the vein to shrink and seal shut.
As a result, blood that was unable to travel back to the heart before the procedure because it had been pooling in the diseased vein (venous reflux) will re-route naturally through other, healthy veins. Over time, the closed vein is harmlessly absorbed by the surrounding tissue.
This video provides a detailed explanation of the procedure.
The Benefits of Radiofrequency Endovenous Thermal Ablation Therapy
There are many benefits to radiofrequency endovenous thermal ablation when compared to other forms of serious venous disease treatments, such as endovenous laser ablation or vein stripping.
